A: Bright purplish ruby red. Little head. Mostly white foam. A little too much like juice or Hawaiian punch.

S: Black cherry predominantly. Slightly sour smelling.

T: Slight straw flavors with light floral and rose notes. The dry notes shift to raspberry and blackberry notes which finishes with a sweet and sour tanginess. There's a hint of greasiness that could have been balanced out a little better by a bit more sourness or bitterness.

M: Light and thin. It finishes well with the short lingering of tanginess.

O: I've had a couple of these over the last year and, while it isn't my favorite, it always leaves me wanting another. I like the style and its crisp and refreshing. It's not for everyone, if you like the sour beers you might like this.

Pours an odd Kool-Aid/fruit punch red with little pink champagne-style bubbles and pretty well no lace. But appearances aren't everything.

Nose is tart berries -- very appealing, actually.

Taste is pleasantly tart, but not sweet. The hibiscus adds a floral tinge, and the coriander imparts a lightly spicy hint towards the finish, but overall the flavor is marionberry. It's a little sour, and a nicely light session beer that breaks the mold a bit.

Sick beer. Unfiltered wheat beer so it has this deep beautiful red color. It comes off sour at first and hits you with a huge fruit note. Virtually no hops flavor so it actually disguises itself as a beer pretty well. Therefore, not for picky hop heads or those not into sours or fruit beers. On the other hand, perfect for people into fruitier things. So drinkable and tasty.
